  1. Hi Burke,

    do you think that there is a chance to map a Harmony-button to switch visalisation on / off ?

    While playing music i prefer the screen with the buttons at the buttom where you can skip to the next song, pause, play....titles.

    At the right side there is a button which is linked to the settings. There you can switch fanart on/off and turn the visualisations on/off.

    Is there an easy way to map a button wihth this function: turn vis on/off while playing music ? I tried "TAB" but this is not what i want.

    Thanks for helping !

  2. Hi Chris,

    thank you again for your help. I followed your instructions and realized that there was no keyboard.xml in my home/bernd/.xmbc/userdata/keymaps folder. I loaded the default keyboard.xml which is shipped with XBMC from here and edited the file as shown above. Then i saved it in the above shown path and folder.

    Every button works but when I press the play-button XMBC crashes and restarts.

    Can you imagine what is wrong ?

  3. Hi hhbernd, welcome to the Flirc forums,

    I've given it a go and you are correct (I don't usually use XBMC for music so didn't notice it earlier).

    The issue appears to lies with XBMC. You should notice that thesong start from the begging when p is pressed if XBMC is currently hovering over that song. You have two options for pausing:

    1) Come out of the music section (to the homescreen for example) then press p or space bar

    2) Press tab to go into visualise then press space

    Pleasant regards,


    Hi Chris ant thank you for the welcome,

    OK - the workaround you mentioned works - but is there any chance of doing anything within the keymap to give the play/pause button back the normal function ? I mostly hear music with XMBC and miss the function very much.



  4. Hello everyone,

    i have a ZBOX ID41+ and XBMXbuntu and want to use it with my Harmony. I followed the steps above and programmed the harmony as Panasonic TC-P65VT30. For Keymapping i used the attached pdf from Chris - thank you !

    Everything seems to work. Only the play/pause-button doesn't work while playing a song. If i press the pause-button, the menu shortly disapears but nothing else. If i push the play button during playback, the song starts from the beginning.

    In videomode when watching a film, the play and pause button works as usual.

    Can anyone help ?
